Haircuts During Hol Hamoed

Haircuts During Hol Hamoed
Day: Friday
Date: October 2, 2015
Parshat: Vezot Habiracha
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 531/2

In memory of Adam Eliyahu ben Reina.

 It is forbidden for men and women over Bar/Bat Mitzvah to get haircuts during Hol Hamoed. Men may not shave or trim their beards either. However, one may trim his mustache even if it doesn't get into his food. One may brush or comb his hair even though some hairs will fall out by doing so. Likewise, one may also cut his nails during Hol Hamoed. Ashkenazim are more strict and do not cut their nails during Hol Hamoed

DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
